XML is the language that HTML is based on. It is structure, structure, structure when it comes to data! XML quite simply defines ownership, relationship, and type for data...

The Languages of Web Development (Simplified) Part 2

In part one, we were talking about internet languages and we managed to pull some data using PHP and SQL from a database about some purchases that we made on our debit card. We then took that data and structured it using HTML giving us a simple table that looks like it got the raw end of the ugly stick. I'll redraw the table so we can remember what it looked like.

So many of the conversations that I have with non-developers about development eventually lead to some explanation of the languages and frameworks that I use to build a site or application. It becomes necessary, then, to explain the specific roles that each language performs, why they do what they do, and why the do not do what the other languages do.

In the interest of good relations, here are some (very) simple examples and explanations of a few of the languages, what they do and why they do it...
